Relational Poverty Network

The Relational Poverty Network (RPN) is an international network collaborating to enliven and expand poverty research.  The RPN brings together scholars, students, activists and policy-makers from diverse theoretical and methodological traditions, disciplines and countries for new conversations.

Relational poverty focuses on systemic inequalities, cross-difference alliances and divisions (such as class, race, gender), political-economic relations, and cultural/discursive representations of poverty.

RPN members are committed to building:

  • collaborative research across national contexts and disciplines
  • meaningful comparisons across quantitative and qualitative studies
  • open conversations across different views of poverty

By posing new questions about social alliances in the face of vulnerability, the RPN opens a space for new understandings and new actions in poverty research and policy.  Find us at:
